Anyone having a righteousness bug?

Prev1
I have been seeing the same. I know my buildings are being hit by my friends, but I no longer get the icon to clean them. My righteousness stars have not been dropping though.

    Yep. I've noticed this within the last day or so. My school is no longer being graffitied and my righteousness rating has now shrunk to zero stars. Someone noted in another thread that he went to the extreme of verifying the bug by creating a second Origin account and then using it in an unsuccesful attempt to vandalize his own school.

    I have had friends sit next to me and vandalise my buildings and have had nothing come up about cleaning it off... As I said, the only reason I heard about sideshow bob was due to these forums, I've personally never seen him.

    My righteousness is 0 stars and it's really denting my income and xp, I am keeping the other stats as high as possible and still only getting a 3 star average... :(

    Are people still experiencing this issue? I ask because as of today the problem seems to have gone away in my own case.

    I still have it.

    Still never seen Sideshow Bob, still never seen a mop to clean graffiti.

    My rating is still 0 stars :(

    I have not heard of anyone seeing Bob since the game's re-release. I suspect that, at least for the moment, he has been dropped. If I recall correctly, in the original version of the app there was some bug involving Bob. Perhaps the quickest fix was just to get rid of Bob.

    I thought this particular problem was in my past, but now it's back. This morning, 5 stars for righteousness; tonight, zip. Ugh. Y'know, I really wish EA would just do away with all of the so-called social features in this game and make it local. Think of the benefits -- no more network connectivity problems. And for another, most of the bugs (like the one having to do with the righteousness rating) seem to stem from the game's reliance on networking. This aspect of the game just seems to be beyond the capability of EA's programmers.

    Just a tip for all of you: if you tag your friends buildings, it will decrease your Righteousness Rating.

    Also, I haven't seen a mop in my, or any of my friends towns in weeks.

    I throw my **** flag out on this.. Tagging others' buildings is about all I do when I visit the people on my list. How else to allow them to clean up? I visit about 60 towns a day and I look to spray first every time. I have not been under 5 stars in righteousness since the update in early August (save for 1 strange drop to 4 for a day) and the only time I was randomly up & down was when Sideshow Bob bounced back and forth last March ~ May when the game had some serious issues.. The game is set up to help others by spraying the buildings that otherwise do nothing for them. Do not avoid the spray. Its the best social option available.

    Are you sure about this or merely guessing? I'm about ready to believe anything at this point, but what you suggest makes no sense whatsoever. If spraying is actually penalized as you suggest, eventually gamers will become aware of that contingency and cease doing so. If spraying thus becomes a rare event, how does anyone ever get to clean a building? You see the problem, right?

    During the 6 or so weeks that I've been playing this has happened to me twice. I don't have a decent theory explaining the precipitous drop, but in each case the rating *did* eventually climb back up to 5.
